For those who have signed up a Japanese account to play and download the Resident Evil 5 demo from Xbox Live, the demo is now region locked.
I played it, and its not even that good. They are making too big a deal about this and since they wanna be jerks about it, I think you people should not even buy the game. The resident evil series started to suck after part 2 anyways.
I played it too , RE5 is RE4 but with nice graphics ... they just Copy-Paste the gameplay , the animations , almost everything :P
I thought RE4 was ok, the controles really sucked. Is the controles the same in RE5?
@Bazookajoe_83 you can choose , yes there is RE4 type control and other one like gears of war
I thought it was great... And yes I played RE4. Yes it is similar. Sometimes, thats all you need to make a great game. Super Mario? Zelda? Madden? Call of Duty: World at War? All great games (COD:WaW is debatable) and all can be called repetitive.
Way to Screw your Paying Customers !! Sony Does'nt mind if i Download anything off the US Store or JaPan Store or Visa Versa And They Dont charge Either Stupid BoTs Paying to get Kicked In the Nuts
So stfu and you can just download the demo from the internet and burn it on a cd.
Thats nice of your mummy to pay for you
how is this ps3 related?
Submitting it here is a habit I suppose.
Whoops, my mistake. Ticked it instinctively. D:
well i never did play a resident evil game and 2 many ps3 exclusives coming out for me to worry about this game
**** you Capcom! to people hating on Microsoft shutup, you know they struck a deal with Capcom for an exclusive Japan deal. But Capcom is forcing them to keep this only to Japan, I have downloaded region locked demos before with never any problems.
to those who downloaded it to cd? I guess I will have to pop it into my 360 and find out.
You can still play the demo aslong as ur not connected to live ...so yea no more online co-op for ppl outside of japan, but still fun, this applies to ppl with the game on disc like my self.
360. Japan only demo. Something doesn't add up...
The games sucks. Period.
Don't lie. The game's amazing... It's like Resident Evil 4 with better graphics, a more in-depth storyline, and a few tweaks to improve gameplay. What's wrong with that? http://www.metacritic.com/s... The only reason the PC version got bad reviews was because the videos were poorly emulated (fixed and improved via MODS) and you couldn't aim with the mouse (fixed and improved via joypad, 360 controller, or PS3 controller). It's the best version, actually. You just have to know how to edit. Resident Evil 4 was one of the best games last generation...winning GOTY two years in a row! The only other game to do that was Viewtiful Joe...which was also Capcom. (Clover)
then don't buy or waste your time making comments about it. Go play your casual titles and leave the men to their real games boy.
NO MO DEMO FO U!
Will the demo come to America or the PS3? Anyone know any dates?
do business M$, pay and never get to download.......!!! WTF....!!!!! Ha ha ha, always something to smile about, only on NXE... Lol.
Its coming to other regions. We weren't allowed to play it cause it was for the Japanese. Just like any service, just like PSN. Its coming at a later date. Grow the f**k up and grow a brain, ignorant ass fanboy
uhh, i'm currently playing the demo right now again... Unless the way i'm getting to the game is a workaround to the region lock EDIT: If you launch the game without being logged into XBOX Live, you'll be able to play the demo (signing into XBOX Live from within the RE5 Demo won't boot you out) EDIT 2: Nope, i'm wrong... now the demo won't even show up on the list LMAO bastards.. oh well
Thats what happened to me. Last night I couldnt see the demo on my list.
You wont be able to play it either, dumbass :3
Now this really pisses me off! When I first heard the demo was released, I created a japanese account, just so I could download it. I was able to download the demo, but it doesn't work... WTF Capcom you greedy bastards, it's just a demo. I wouldn't mind playing it in japanese, as I understand the language to some degree. But to region lock a demo just seems a little weak and... well... [email protected] Now we have to wait until Jan 5th:( This game better blow my brains out of my fu**ing skull, or else there's no way I'm buying this.
Why are you guys complaining about the controls? I don't understand... Resident Evil 4 was amazing! Why wouldn't we want another Resident Evil 4??? That's like saying we don't want a better looking Shadow of the Colossus. Get over yourselves and remember why Resident Evil 4 was such a freakin' awesome game! If they change the controls, it's not going to make it better. It just won't be as scary... Also, they region locked it to get an accurate count on how many people download the 360 demo and how many download the PS3 demo...to better understand their audience. How intelligent are you people?
And they can do that while still releasing the demo in all regions you realize. This just reeks of anti-consumer BS.
Resident Evil had it's pluses, I've seen and watched video's for RE5. So far I've not been confinced that its nothing more than a next gen remake of RE4 I might be wrong but i've seen nothing so far that we have not already seen.
Region locking is lame, no matter the format.
yep. it sucked with the uncharted demo and it sucks with this demo as well. Region locking = sh1t Lucky i DL it before they locked it!
No, its locked. Try playing it now, it wont work.
I downloaded the demo and burned it to a CD and tried it out. It's not all that good to be honest. Graphics are great but the demo was kinda disappointing.
just some things are totally unrealistic. Yes I know the whole game is unrealistic but I mean, how many times can you get pounded by a dude with a huge battle axe (?) and still get up and fight off the baddies. I like the look and just wish they opted for more control of your character when in aiming mode.
